Follow the steps in this guide to remove, transfer, and/or replace the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly in your iPhone XS. This assembly includes the earpiece speaker, microphone, ambient light sensor, flood illuminator, and proximity sensor.
This assembly is paired to your individual iPhone from the factory, so you must transfer it from your old display to your new one during any display replacement.
The flood illuminator forms part of the biometric Face ID security feature, and Face ID functions will fail if the original component is damaged or incorrectly installed. Replacing it with a new part will also cause Face ID to fail, so take extra care not to damage any of these components during this procedure. If damaged, only Apple can restore Face ID function.

Schritt 1 — Earpiece Speaker and Front Sensor Assembly ¶
On the back of the display assembly, peel back and remove any tape covering the hidden screw at the lower right corner of the speaker housing.
Schritt 2 ¶
Remove the three Y000 screws securing the speaker/sensor assembly:
One 1.3 mm screw
One 1.4 mm screw
One 1.9 mm screw
Schritt 3 ¶
Using a spudger, gently pry under the top edge of the speaker assembly, and flip it over—down and away from the top edge of the display.
Schritt 4 ¶
Use a hairdryer or heat gun or prepare an iOpener and apply it to the top front of the display for about a minute, in order to soften the adhesive securing the sensors.
Schritt 5 ¶
Carefully slide the edge of an opening pick underneath the flex cable below the microphone.
Twist gently to separate the microphone, while being careful not to strain or damage the flex cable.
If needed, use the point of the spudger to finish separating the microphone from its notch in the front panel. If the microphone remains difficult to separate, apply more heat.
Schritt 6 ¶
Working left to right, slide an opening pick beneath the flex cable and underneath the proximity sensor + flood illuminator module.
Gently wiggle and lift to separate the module from its notch in the front panel.
Schritt 7 ¶
Use tweezers to wiggle the ambient light sensor and lift it from its notch in the display.
Schritt 8 ¶
If you successfully removed the entire ambient light sensor, as shown in the first photo, continue to the next step below.
If the white diffuser strip detached and remains embedded in the display, as shown in the second photo, you will need to carefully lever it out along the top edge using a thin blade or pry tool. Re-applying heat first may make this task a bit easier.
Schritt 9 ¶
Remove the earpiece speaker and front sensor assembly.
The module must be positioned so that these components are not obstructed by any adhesive.
